I just purchased a used Ross Mount Hood Mountain Bike on eBay for $10 local pickup for my neice. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the bike. It appears to be 1990's vintage and is quite light with a CroMoly frame and very decent components. 21 speed grip shift with Shimano Biopace chainrings and sealed shimano hubs. Actually has a freehub and not a threaded freewheel. Tires show no wear but the skinwalls are dry. They are branded Ross as are the handlebars, so whoever they contracted with was putting the Ross logo onto the components as well as the frame. The frame is white with black spatter as a second color applied over the paint. Even the aluminum seatpost has a cast top and aluminum/ not steel to clamp the seat. For $10, this was a great surprise when I picked it up.
